Stamps Only Sunday

Good Morning!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  I have had some fun being back in my crafting corner.  I have another card to share with you today that is for my monthly card traders group.  Now I am all caught up with that!  My group ladies will be so proud of me.

The challenge for my group was to add paper piercing to the card.  I am thankful for an easy challenge this go-around.  I also drew inspiration from a new blog (new to me anyway), Um Wow Studio.  There is a fabulous sketch on this blog that I just had to try!  Cute Card Thursday's challenge is called What's Buggin' You and Charisma Cardz Challenge is to use more than one fold.

So here's what I did....

Just so we're clear on the colors - the base is Chocolate Chip.  I can't really tell what this card looks like.  I am posting this in the morning and I have the morning sun blaring in my room so there's a bit of glare.  Anyway, here's the front of the card and I was a bit hestitant to put bees with these colors, but in the end, I think the card came out really cute.

I created a gate fold card but since the base is brown, I decided the inside better be decorated with something easier to write on.  So I added a white panel and decorated it up a bit with more stamping and more paper piercing.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Chocolate Chip, Apricot Appeal, Dusty Durango (SU)
Paper:  Open stock at Michaels
Stamps/Ink:  Bee Happy (TSG), Tuxedo Black (Memento), Always Artichoke, So Saffron, Apricot Appeal (SU)
Copics:  B00, B000, Y06, Y15, YR20
Tools:  Piercer and mat
Embellishments:  green satin ribbon (Offray)

I hope you enjoy my card and that it inspires you to come visit me!  LOL  Have a great day, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
